I like the detailed reviews & high standards that the SBC holds tipsters to. A service can boast fantastic headline figures but details such as adjusted profits after odds tracking help me to decide if there is substance to the services claims. I also look forward to the tipster profit reports as they help me to keep tabs on other services that may be of interest to me at some point.

I joined SBC because nearly all of the research that I require to enable me to enroll in a tipsters membership is done for you. I don’t normally invest/join without a lot of thought.

I keep records of all bets from all tipsters and my own reasons for backing my own selections and have done so for as long as I can remember. I have been profitable in all 7 years since retirement so far and my last year betting returned just over £7k profit.

It (The Secret Betting Club) has given me some crucial information on tipsters that have enabled me to have a long term edge over the bookies. Information such as long term consistency of tipsters as well as other key information such as odds and how taking odds at the wrong time can impact ROI.

Sometimes getting the advised odds from a tipster can be difficult especially if you have many other commitments but SBC gives information on whether starting prices will generate similar profits. Odds are a massive factor in profitable betting and SBC delves into this information better than anyone else.

The SBC has enabled me to derive a decent second income by helping identify honest and professional betting tipsters that are available out there. Having worked in banking for over 30 years, I retired 2 years ago and and this has allowed me to increase the number of tipsters I follow so that betting has become my full part time job!

I have just conducted a review of the tipster performance for 2017 and my net profit was in excess of £58,000, the majority of it coming from horse racing.

To date, In a little over two months, I’m showing a profit of £4200 at an ROI of 4.2%. Not bad considering I’m currently suffering a draw-down of around £5k over the last two weeks.

If I hadn’t got to grips with the psychology then this would be a testing time however I’m taking it in my stride knowing I was due a correction, that it’s all part and parcel, and that it is what happens in the long term that counts.

I know you guys have got my back and are ready to advise me on any questions or conundrums I might have. Knowing I can call on your expertise and experience gives me a lot of confidence going forward.

I have made around 20k per year extra through betting. Its very difficult to say how much this website has contributed but knowledge and discipline are key and SBC reinforces that. AH Edge, On the Oche, Football Investor have definitely contributed to my profits so I’d guess it has made me around 5k a year of my profit. (I used to record all my bets religiously but have been slack in recent times)

I like that the SBC is independent. I know that when they recommend a tipster, or upgrade or downgrade an existing rating, that their opinion is based on results and judgement, not on hidden commissions.

The tipster tables are great because you can zero in on the type of tipster you’re looking for – in my case, I look at the more affordable and low workload options. I’ve discovered that tipsters who charge enormous amounts don’t necessarily do any better than those who charge moderately. I read the reviews to determine if there is anyone new I want to follow. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, SBC gave me confidence that it is possible to make decent profits over time by following tipsters, if you are disciplined.

Following: 22 tipsters

My total profits since joining SBC are well over $1 million of which SBC approved tipsters account for about 25% of that amount.

SBC is a legitimate source for finding successful tipsters in the world of so many dishonest tipsters. All tipsters have been thoroughly vetted, and all sections are proofed with high accuracy therefore ensuring tipsters of high quality. I would recommend anyone purchasing any service through any source to paper trade to ensure consistency, obtaining value odds and results until you are confident that the service can return a profit to a reasonable level that meets your expectations.

Following a fantastic start to 2017 so far [i am in profit to the tune of] £35210 in 23 months. Thanks guys!!! Whilst things have moved on fantastically since Day One, SBC was undoubtedly the biggest single factor in setting me up for success at the outset. You gave me the confidence to get through a horrendous start where I lost £3776 of my opening £5k in the first 82 days. Without you, I would have lost my bottle completely.

The SBC magazines are very informative with regular tipster profit reports. They have a great forum for people to promote their free tips and i always look forward to reading Rowan’s bet diary. Betting can be a lonely game at times so it’s always nice to hear how other people are doing.

I’m not going to go into figures but i will say that since I joined the SBC, my betting profits have paid for all my foreign holidays, which i take 4 times a year!

SBC membership has opened up new avenues and advice that I hadn’t considered previously such as keeping proper records, introducing lay bets and how they operated plus their lists of good and bad tipsters to avoid. During my first full year of using proper bookmakers, I made a profit of £42,134. However this meant six accounts were restricted and four closures…..a high price to pay!

You can never predict how a tipster is going to do in the next 12 months, but SBC’s reports help point out those they feel offer the best chance of success. What I can say is that I personally won 20 grand last year in 2015. This year (2016) hasn’t been as good yet as I’m down about £1000 but its very early days. Overall I am hugely in profit and thats vitally important.

I think it is fair to say that the SBC has totally transformed the way I approach betting. I had in the past followed a couple of tipsters picked up from the racing press, who on the whole were largely unsuccessful and it was never possible to achieve their stated profits. The SBC has helped me identify those genuine tipsters with a proven track record of profit making.

Their magazines are always a must read and packed with information about what tipsters to follow and who to avoid, what services  that are out there that can help you become a better bettor and more. I’ve found some of my daily tipsters there that have helped me creating a second income today and I’ve got the numbers to prove it!

During 2015, I managed an incredible net profit of £11,595 (after £1,764 of tipster subscription and SBC fees were deducted).  I’m now free from credit card debt for the first time in years and am planning a cruise with my long suffering wife for our Silver wedding anniversary in October this year – happy days!
